and the new information environment." but it seems that for the last 20 to 30 years we've been debating the after broadcast news scenario. how do you assess it? >> well, um, what we're trying to do in this book is put it into a little bit of an historical context. so our basic argument is that over the last 20 years there have been a number of changes, some of them slow, some of them more quick, that are changing the way in which we think about where we get public affairs information from. and the three big changes that we think are going on are the blurring of news and entertainment, so think the daily show -- although it's more than that -- the blurring of producers and consumers; there think about the impact that twitter and that youtube had in the iranian or the middle eastern arab spring revolutions, but also in american elections. and the third is the blurring of fact and opinion. we lived in an era prior to this where we thought there was a clear line between when journalists were presenting us factual information from a neutral or father or perspective -- fair perspective and wh

, a political environment that could, in fact, i in danger and threaten the civil freedoms of the united states, if all of a sudden the american people demand a response that congress feels it must respond and civil liberties could be the first thing that goes overboard. you mentioned the national defense authorization act. i think it's a very legitimate concern. one of the principal focu focusf our advisory panel, principle focuses was whether or not and how you use the military in the homeland. if you create a panic or a stress environment in the united states, there is a danger that the executive branch will simply respond and use whatever resources are available to it without regard to law or restrictions such as -- which, of course, we know a doctrine that prohibits the use of military and homeland. it was one of the five principal focuses of our advisory panel, our concern over this type of environment. the ndaa, the national defense authorization act in fact in our view does begin to move the military into a domestic responsibility and into a domestic function. this is not good. and that
academic environment, the 24-hour aspect, and constant access to role models. why wouldn't all of those things be just as important for poor kids as it would be for rich kids? >> we believe very strongly that there is a group of kids for whom the answer is a 24-hour supportive educational environment. and they're not gonna have a shot if we don't give that to them. >> it all starts here. the seed campus is a four-acre oasis, a safe zone where 340 kids can focus on school free from distractions back at home. >> everyone has their own coordinate grid. >> seed's goal is to prepare these children academically and socially for college and beyond. the students enter in sixth and seventh grade, 90% of them performing below grade level. charles adams is the head of school. >> we are a public school, and we have a lottery. we get what we get. it could be an honor roll student. it could be a student three, four grade levels behind that's struggling with a number of issues at home. so we get the gamut. >> i was told you have kids who come here in the sixth grade reading at a second-grade level. >>
environment. it is the most dynamic and unpredictable i have seen in my over 36 years of service. unlike post-conflict drawdowns, where we have a termination of conflict due to a police treaty or a political decline of a superpower, instead today we have 81,000 soldiers deployed, including 50,000 fighting in afghanistan, and thousands of others in kuwait, in the horn of africa. over 91,000 soldiers are stationed in over 160 countries. we have been in a continuous state of war in the last 12 years, the longest in our history. but today, in my opinion, the greatest threat to our national security is the fiscal uncertainty resulting from a lack of predictability in the budget cycle, a series of continuing resolutions, a threat of sequestration hanging over our heads, our country's inability to put its fiscal house in order compromise is the full readiness of the joint force, army, and will impact our ability to provide our security to our nation. we have two problems as i sit here today. we have an immediate problem in fiscal year 2013, which has about eight months left. we have a longer-term pr
. it will need to be done in an environment where as we broaden the base, we both contribute to deficit reduction and hopefully are able to lower rates. on the business side, we have a contradiction in our fiscal tax system. our statutory rate is high. our effective rate is not as high. when you look at the united states against other countries, it the statutory rate makes the u.s. look unattractive compared to others. for individual firms, their average tax rate is much lower because of all of the complicated provisions that are part of the code now. it would be a challenge to take on those individual credit. there's no way way to bring the rate down. that is something i think we need to do to maintain competitiveness abroad. >> you still believe that going down the road we need to reduce that to get the rate down? >> i do. when one looks at a table of international tax rates, it stands up at u.s. statutory rate is high. it is a complicated story to tell that the average rate is lower. it does not affect all businesses equally. we need a simpler tax code. >> could you briefly comment on somethin

to reduce the infrastructure's impact upon the environment. on the front lines of protecting the beaches, are the crews that clean out the stormwater system. man: this big vactor truck works on the same principle as your vacuum cleaner in your house, only this thing sucks up the whole house. some of the storm drains collect a lot of trash. i started cleaning drains in '93. they were horrible because they hadn't been maintained so much. now this is a priority. you have trash, animal waste, and it ends up on our beaches. that is a health risk. that is one of the main reasons why we have to close the beaches after heavy rain. narrator: but even when it's not raining, water still enters the stormwater system, carrying pollutants. here on the west coast, a lot of our storm drain systems are separate from the sanitary sewer system, so if you dump something in the storm drain, it goes right to the ocean untreated. alamillo: we haven't had a major rainstorm in the last year or so yet there's a lot of water in this creek here. i would say 20% of it is natural and the other 80% is runoff. shapiro:
